What is SOUL?

SOUL is a data driven approach intended to make a student's college experience more personal and supportive.
Why SOUL?
By pairing analytics with personalized instruction and support services, we can pro-actively respond to a student's needs to increase her chance of educational success.

Leading the Nation in Education Innovation
In 2014, Bay Path was one of only 24 US institutions to receive a prestigious Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education (FIPSE) grant from the US Dept. of Education. This grant has helped us develop SOUL.
